I don’t know about you, but I love to sleep. You know, from dozing off while someone is telling me a really boring story, to passing out after a hectic day with the family, when sleep finally comes, there is nothing like it in the world.
You may know, that we try to live as natural a life as possible. I like to think that we all do, but there are some people who are better than others (and don’t worry, I do not include myself in that list). I do try, but there are many ways I could improve. One way did not even occur to me until I stumbled on an article about the Avocado mattress.
This is not some new Millennial thing, I can assure you of that. What it is, is a non-toxic mattress made from natural fibers and materials. It got me thinking. Should we be thinking about our mattresses when we try to live the natural life?
What are we breathing?
It wasn’t until recently that I learned regular foam mattresses could release gasses as they begin to break down. Now, in small doses, these gasses do not trouble us too much, but if we are sleeping on top of a foam mattress for up to 8 hours a night, it might become a problem.
Avocado mattresses use organic and natural materials in their mattress. They are also certified Greenguard Gold by UL environment. So, what does this mean? Well, it means that there are no human-made chemicals which will break down and become toxic. The more natural the materials, the better they are for you (and they last longer too).

Natural is better
Natural fibers and materials not only last longer, but they will also give you a better sleep. Foam mattress use foam to support and cradle you, and they do a pretty good job of it too. The Avocado mattress uses natural Dunlop latex, New Zealand wool, and organic cotton. The natural materials provide natural cushioning which is almost impossible to replicate.
These materials are also naturally breathable. If you have ever worn wool, then you know that it allows air to naturally flow through it. The same is true with cotton. The breathable mattress cools you when it is too hot, but will still retain some heat when it is cool. Well is also great t wicking away moisture.
When you have a temperature-controlled and moisture-free mattress, you are almost guaranteed to have a better sleep.
Healthy for the planet
Is a natural mattress healthy for you? We always ask questions based on ourselves as individuals, but do we ever step back and look at the wider picture? What we should be asking is, is a natural mattress healthy for the planet? If it is healthy for the planet, then it is also healthy for us. So, is it?
The fact that the Avocado mattress is made from natural and organic materials makes it better for the environment. The eco-friendly options make this mattress less of a strain on the environment. The natural materials are also biodegradable and recyclable. When you are done with your mattress (and that will take a long time), the materials can be turned into something else.
Yes, the Avocado mattress is better for the planet, and better for you.
A natural solution
I have to say, that I had not really thought about going natural with a mattress until now. Who really has thought about including their mattress in their natural way of life? I guess it is just one of those things which you take for granted.
The Avocado mattress will make an impact on the environment (in a good way) and help you to live a more natural life, both when you are awake and when you are sleeping.
